The Fox at Folksworth

From the folks that gave us Clarkes, the popular (now closed) restaurant in Peterborough city centre, comes this refurbished village pub – now a dining destination of choice just off the A1, about a mile from Peterborough.

Serving up modern British cuisine in a bright, comfortable and airy restaurant and bar with friendly staff, it has a pleasingly commodious feel. It also has a large outside terrace with views over the surrounding countryside, perfect for the summer months.

I have now been twice for a midweek luncheon and think this is a lovely spot for lunch or dinner. On my last visit I chose from the seasonal winter menu and was not disappointed with a comforting dish of braised beef brisket, horseradish mash and green beans – perfect on an unseasonably bitter day. To finish I chose what they said was their most popular dessert – a blood orange crème brûlée with Brittany shortbread – which was a picture and tasted good as well!

The Fox also serves light bites, including an excellent selection of sandwiches. It offers good wine and ales, too, and I opted for a pint of JHB from our friends at Oakham Ales.

There is something very welcoming and warm about this place. It has a lot of chandeliers too!
